PREVENTION, RECYCLING, DISPOSAL
Unlike household waste, the organic and inorganic waste generated in the production plants at the Chemical Industrial Park Knapsack is solid, liquid and gaseous. Each of these waste types is treated in an ecologically responsible manner, recycled or disposed of professionally.
In the planning and development stages of plants we check whether the future generation of waste can be prevented or minimized. Our strategy also incorporates packaging and possible alternative materials.
Besides the company collection points on site, we have our own waste disposal center in the Chemical Park Knapsack that handles numerous recyclable materials such as scrap metal, electronic scrap and glass, as well as oils and construction waste. Recycling and disposal are performed by certified partner companies of the chemical industrial park.
Exhaust emissions from production plants and liquid residues that cannot be recycled are incinerated ecologically at the available company residue incineration facilities at the Chemical Industrial Park Knapsack. The harmful substances contained are destroyed or bonded at temperatures of over 800 degrees centigrade. The hydrochloric acid produced in the process is reprocessed and used again in the plants. The incineration facilities are equipped with a multi-stage flue-gas cleaning system as well as modern measuring equipment.
